  1. So glad your blog is up and running smoothly now. It can be so stressful. This is a recipe that is perfect to start off again with. I just adore mango.

    1. Thanks! It was overwhelming. I really didn’t think it would bring out so many emotions, but wanting to fix something so badly and all you can do is wait an indefinite amount of time make my brain hurt. So glad to be back!

    1. Oh goodness yes, I hope to stay in this space for a while. It is like moving, you don’t want to do it again until you forget how bad it really was! Haha.

  2. Woohoo! Your blog pulled up on the first try for me! And then I got to see this perfect blend of sweet and spicy! Today is a good day for both of us! =D

    1. Yes! I did an actual happy dance when the site went back to being functional again! I never thought that would be so exciting for me after having all of that down time yesterday!

  3. That looks fantastic! I love the mix of sweet and spicy, and down here in Florida, we have super fresh seafood.

  4. Now this looks like a delicious way to prepare chicken. The sweetness of the mango and the spiciness of the habanero sound great together.

  5. Your website is amazing! I will be coming here for recipes galore! Mmmm. Glad everything is working well now congratulations!!! Chicken and Mango yum.

  6. Congrats on successfully moving your site, that is a bear of a job! This dish looks great, I love the combination of mangoes and habanero.

    1. Thank you! It was so much more work than we expected. In 48 hours I must have gotten a total of 4 hours of sleep! We are through it now though!

  7. This food looks so delicious. I wish i could try it right now. I will have to try the Mango Habanero Glazed Chicken first.

  8. Wow this looks amazing. I will have to try these recipes on the weekend. I am sure my family will love it.

  9. I made this last week and wrote a review about it on my website. I really like this recipe although there wasn’t much heat to it. I think using a food processor for the mango and including the habaneros would’ve fixed this issue. It was a nice sweet and sour alternative. I will definitely be making this again.

    1. Yes, I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to heat. I used to LOVE spice, the spicier the better. But once the first pregnancy rolled around I lost all my tolerance for it! Love your version though!
